Marcy commissions her own portrait by Sidekick Portraits…
8 am Monday morning.
Marcy saunters into the bedroom, aghast that Cynthia is still sleeping and decides to do something about it.
Marcy stands on Cynthia’s chest – nose to nose.
Marcy (loudly): HEY!
Cynthia opens her eyes to a face-ful of Marcy.
Marcy: Open the computer. I think my pet portrait from Sidekick Portraits arrived.
Cynthia (throwing off the covers): Ohhhh… how exciting! I can’t wait to see which photo you submitted!
Cynthia walks excitedly into the office with Marcy following on top of her heels.
Cynthia: I just love how Allison, the artist and founder of Sidekick Portraits, digitally hand paints over a photograph. She creates the most amazing and interesting pet portraits.
Cynthia: Don’t you just love how they’re paintings but look so life-like? Allison is a master at capturing the essence of each animal.
Cynthia turns on her computer and heads straight to the Marcy gmail account.
Cynthia: So which photo did you submit? A cute one? A sweet one? A funny one? You know we are trying to change your image a little. Nice’n you up a tad.
Marcy opens her email from Sidekick Portraits.
Marcy: This one.
Marcy purrs in appreciation.
Marcy: I love it. Allison captured my essence purrfectly.
Cynthia: Oh wowza meowza! She did! I love it too! But…
Marcy: But what?!
Cynthia: Let’s commission another one! One where you look cute and sweet and funny!
Cynthia searches her iPhone for the cute, sweet, funny photos of Marcy.
Marcy: Don’t bother. I deleted them. No one messes with my rep. I am the “Hell No Kitty” after all.
